I fell in love with Northampton when I first visited Smith College Museum of Art in April 2010. I have been painting in this town ever since.
This year’s trips to Northampton has been limited. Labor day weekend was the perfect excuse. I went back to the painting spot where I started a painting in June.
The weather was cloudy and was very humid. Besides few scattered showers in the afternoon, the light was constant. The painting only had a light layer of color, so it was easy to change it to a cloudy atmosphere.The houses I was painting have beautiful lines of wires and pipes leading from one house to the next, unique windows at each floors. It was a few hours of battle to choose what to paint and what to leave out.
The painting is almost done this morning, however, it may need some finishing touches. Looking forward to my next visit.
